Story Time: Patricia Lakin presents Made By Hand: Bicycles and Made By Hand: Skateboards
Veteran children’s book author Patricia Lakin taps into our ongoing fascination with the way things work and the process of creation with her new Made By Hand series. Bicycles profiles a former bike racer and independent steel bike maker in Roanoke, Virginia, while Skateboards offers a glimpse into the creative process of a skateboard creator in Houston, Texas. Charts, infographics, timelines, and bold photographs make these picture books great for anyone who is curious about how things are made, and the books also feature resources to inspire kids to make their own objects by hand. Kids can join Patricia at Greenlight to hear about her books, and take part in a cool project using found objects to create their own “Made By Hand” treasures! Ages 3 to 12.
